Notes From Underground: A Possible Solution to the Central Bank Dilemma

Wed, 11/17/2021 - 01:00
It’s been. another week in which headline inflation concerns has jolted markets, particularly in the interest rate space, but not as much as many investors and traders would have expected. The yield curves in the U.S. FLATTENED as markets seem want to believe that the FED will raise rates in an effort to CURB the enthusiasm of the stickiness of recent price increases. As Peter Boockvar pointed out in his piece on Friday’s Michigan Consumer Sentiment Survey, confidence declined due to rising concerns over the “escalating inflation rate and growing belief among consumers that no effective

Energy prices fell for a third consecutive week and third week in 12 as the looming threat of intervention by executive order from the US president to try to reduce energy prices dominated market influences this week. The rate of inflation was reported at 32-year highs, enabling the dollar to strengthen as sharp increases in the cost of the dollar are now inevitable. Both the US government-based EIA and OPEC issued monthly reports that were interpreted as bearish. On the week, WTI fell 0.6%, Brent 0.7%, RBOB 0.4% and ULSD 2.1% as US commercial inventories continued to drop. Core US inflation

Notes From Underground: What Turned the Markets On Friday?

Wed, 11/10/2021 - 06:38
The U.S. and Canadian unemployment data both were somewhat stronger than expected. The markets were trading in focus with the robust U.S. data — equities higher, DOLLAR firm, and bonds trying to adjust in the face of the FOMC‘s tapering plans. Things took a turn around 11 a.m. eastern time. The precious metals began a ferocious rally, bonds rallied, and all the currencies began to rally actually closed higher on the day even as European interest rates moved similar to the U.S. and equities dropped from their all-time highs. What could’ve been responsible for the moves on a day of good data

Market Summary: November 7, 2021

Petroleum prices fell for the second week in 11, recovering from sharp reductions midweek that briefly touched October lows. This was the worst week for prices since August. At the virtual meeting in Vienna this past week, OPEC+ maintained the path of gradual increases, adhering to their long-established policy which led to a monthly boost in output of 400 KBPD. OPEC+ intransigence at repeated requests from Western leaders asking for a further boost in supplies fell on deaf ears which resulted in the implied threat of a release of Crude from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Despite this

Petroleum prices fell for the first week in 10, easing minimally as Brent prices actually improved on the week. Persistent concerns regarding lower supplies, particularly in Cushing, continued sharp increases in speculative length in petroleum futures markets, ongoing shortfalls of coal and Natural Gas supplies in China, India and Europe, including the possible ban of Distillate exports from China and ongoing OPEC+ discipline provided price support. A sharp increase in overall US Crude stocks, prospects of a revival in Iranian nuclear discussions, a rise in the utilization of Natural Gas and

A Warning From Jack Dorsey - Can Gold & Silver Be The Next Commodities To Make A Move?

Tue, 11/02/2021 - 00:04
Gold and silver are the oldest means of exchange, far outdating dollars, euros, pounds, and all current traditional fiat and cryptocurrencies. The Bible’s old testament makes many references to gold and silver as money and metals that reflect wealth. Inflation erodes the value of money as it lessens its purchasing power. Governments can expand and contract the supply of fiat currencies with the push of a bottom these days. However, growing gold and silver supplies involves extracting more of the metals from the earth’s crust. Therefore, gold and silver tend to be inflation barometers. When

Market Summary: October 24, 2021

Tue, 10/26/2021 - 00:34
Petroleum prices rose for a record ninth consecutive week, reaching their highest levels since 2014. Ongoing OPEC discipline, continued shortfalls of US Crude production, diminished supplies at Cushing, easing of restrictions on Covid-19 vaccinated travelers, the pending arrival of winter in the northern hemisphere and an expanding switch to oil-based power from Natural Gas and Coal were the key drivers in providing price support. Total commercial petroleum inventories in the US fell by 9.8 MB last week as US Gasoline stocks fell to two year lows and Crude stocks in Cushing Oklahoma fell to
